Get the Insider's Experience
Unbridled Horse Tours grew out of two friends' enthusiasm for putting two things they love together - horses and people. Martha Martin and Nancy "Hap" Hapgood founded the tour company in 2000. Hap retired in 2018, with Martha continuing on their tradition of customizing horse farm tours for visitors from near and far.
While Martha's focus is on Kentucky's largest signature industry - horses – if your interests include historic homes, distilleries, barns, architecture, shopping or more, she'll put together your perfect itinerary.
Personable, Passionate, Knowledgable.
Martha Martin is a native Kentuckian who has been involved in the equine industry all her life as a Thoroughbred owner and breeder. Martha grew up on an historic farm herself, Audubon, in Midway, Kentucky.
Martha will give you an "insider's view" as you visit famous farms and meet the people and horses behind the scenes. She is passionate about the thoroughbred industry, and you can often find her watching the races at Keeneland Racetrack.
Expertise, Enthusiasm, Access.
“We had Martha customize a tour for us. It was amazing! She was so knowledgeable about the farms and derby winners. She was so laid back and friendly and was so well respected at the farms we visited... I would highly recommend her tour, you won’t be disappointed”
- Kim M. (Lancaster, PA)
The advantage of going on a tour with a local who had such apparent passion for horses and the area can’t be underestimated... She really was like traveling with a friend by the end of the day.” - Froghop96 (Pataskala, OH)
